(and a question for Gustav : do the rev5 pcbs correct the rev4 pcb errors shown in the errata ?)

Based on the pdf named VECA_ERRATA_4.pdf you need to correct the rev5 boards.

2x left and right crossing traces between the bypass relays.
reverse  tantals on aux board.
100nf cap on the psu section.
2x left and right two in parallel 33k resistors or one 16k  in the side chain section

If memory serves, it stood for “Pump” - as in less transparent, more obvious gain pumping.

after a few years I started to assemble this compressor. some of the errata changes I did already. some changes were absolutely new to me. There's still some work to do.

thank you ToBSn for sharing the Errata doc 4. I bought the pcb from Gustav, when he already closed the support for this project. I am happy to have a working compressor so far. I still need to change the orientation of the tantalums on the switch board. I also need a dual 10k Lin which fits in the front panel.

I want to thank Gustav for this project and everybody in the group who's sharing knowledge an experiences. You guys are fantastic!

this is how I corrected the crossed wiring inside the pcb.
